30 Years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child

The Convention on the Rights of the Child is 30! Find ways to celebrate, advocate, teach, and more!

Thirty years ago, on November 20th, world  leaders adopted the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) an international agreement on childhood. Now the most ratified of all international treaties, this historic commitment to the world’s children has radically transformed young lives across the globe. It sets out the rights that must be realized for children to develop to their full potential.

But still not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood. Still, too many childhoods are cut short. It is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfill their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all. 

Human Rights Here and Now – “For Every Child, Every Right.”

In honor of the 30th Anniversary, HRE USA has dedicated its latest edition of Human Rights Here and Now to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). We have also created an online toolkit of ready-to-use resources entitled, Every Child, Every Right! to help anyone learn and teach about the CRC!

To advocate for the rights of the child in the United States, HRE USA is also galvanizing support for U.S. ratification of the CRC through our CRC in the USA Campaign.
